Trinity University’s Center for the Sciences & Innovation (CSI) was designed to promote interdisciplinary learning and productive collisions among students, faculty, and staff. The largest development ever undertaken on the campus, the project includes new construction along with major renovations of existing buildings configured to create an integrated academic complex that puts science on display for all students. The building was also designed to showcase and promote sustainability from the one-of-a-kind green roof to collection of condensate for bathroom use. The LEED certified over 250,000 SF complex serves as a laboratory for understanding the benefits of sustainability. Home to eight academic departments, the McNair Scholars Program, and the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, CSI is Trinity’s hub for collaborative learning. Students and faculty across all disciplines utilize the building to experience hands-on, research-based education. The facility tour will include an overview of sustainability measures that meet rigorous LEED criteria, and building features such as a landscaped bioswale, native and adaptive landscaping with grey water irrigation, the green roof, rainwater and condensate collection systems, and Thermowheel energy recovery wheels.Registered attendees will be shuttled from the Convention Center to the Trinity University campus by minibus. A continental breakfast will also be served.
